Gotta laugh when a loan signing in Reguillon is your best player on the pitch and giving it his all.

We should take the first offer from a Saudi club that comes in for Casemiro.

His legs are gone sadly and I doubt he gives a * now. Was terrific last season but he is looking cooked.

When do we start to worry about Onana?

Faced 12 shots on target so far at United and have conceded 9...

I think he deserves a bit of time but not a good start to his United career.

Being the United keeper is the toughest gig.

Yep. DDG has four POTY awards at United. He’s a goalkeeper, goes to show how worthless the defenders and midfielders were in front of him.
 
God, we have no urgency to go forward. So meek and lacklustre. I'd honestly much rather turn it over at least trying to challenge their defenders and goalkeeper than just studding around with it trying to pick a perfect pass and giving it away cheaply in the midfield or backline.

Defensive mistakes and a dodgy penalty cost us.

That was a game that we probably would have been lucky to win as Bayern were far better, but looking at how they scored, we gave them the points...

Also, why is it that it takes ETH/the players 85 minutes of match time and being behind to show some attacking intent. That last 10 minutes showed some urgency. Where the hell was it before that?

Pretty crazy that we are probably the only top club in Europe that is satisfied to keep playing a mediocre midfield week in, week out. You look at the other top teams and they are absolutely stacked with talent in that area, whereas, we will go for the paper over the cracks approach. Mind boggling.

No surprises when we have owners who probably don’t even know who Ronaldo is. Until we get new owners in, we will continue to be in this s**t state.

Play well for 20 mins, miss an easy chance and then implode.

Mentally weak players.
Literally came to a blunder by Onana then the flood gates opened.

Onana looking worse by the game.

If our midfield didn't act like total clowns defensively, we would have gotten something out of that game easily.
We have been starting games well.

But our biggest problem is we fall apart and heads drop after conceding the first goal.

What happened to our back 4? last year they were high fiving each other, chest bumping each other whenever DDG made a save or someone made a tackle or block.
